Many years ago, I was young and stupid. At 19 years old, I married the preacher’s son. Told you I was young and stupid, didn’t I? My relationship education up until that time was courtesy of strict parenting that had one foot in church and none in the real world. My parents’ view on sex was unambiguous: abstinence, no alternatives, and no acknowledgment of any other option. This was in the 1970’s, the era of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll, in no particular order. While the rest of the world was steeped in the Beatles and the Stones, my life was wrapped around The Old Rugged Cross and Rock of Ages. And fights. Lots and lots of fights. Like so many people, I learned early that I didn’t want what my parents had. I knew I wanted something better. I just didn’t have a clue what it was. That’s true for so many of us, and a huge reason why so many of us go through one bad relationship after another without figuring out how to make a permanent change. You can break the cycle and find a relationship with a person you love and respect, and who loves and respects you in return. It’s possible to find someone who treats you well. It’s possible to go for weeks or months without an argument. What’s more, it’s possible that disagreements can exist without deteriorating into the kinds of destructive, screaming exchanges that serve no purpose but to wound and destroy. The methods I outline in this book are simple enough that anyone can do them. They don’t require a college degree or complex mathematics. Everything is arranged in steps, allowing you to build on one step to get to the next, with straightforward explanations of why it matters at each level. Each of the things I recommend, I’ve done myself and can vouch that it works. I culled some of the best advice from several sources, including brilliant friends, books, and professionals. This book cuts straight to the chase, because I suspect you’re ready to do the same.

Innocent Eyes by Hard De Lune

Innocent Eyes by Charlotte E Hart and Rachel De Lune Release Date: 19th February Genre: Dark. Erotic Romance   #InnocentEyesTour Add to your Goodreads TBR Synopsis: "If he's gross, I'm bailing."  That's what I said to my supposed best friend when she asked me to take her place. A blind date, she said. What harm could it do?  He was charming. Beautiful. God's finest creation. He wined me and dined me. Made me do things I'd never before dreamt of in the bedroom. It was perfect. Dangerous. Arousing.  But Jenny didn’t tell me the full story. She didn’t tell me about the debt she owed. And now Quinn Cane wants his money's worth, and he’s going to make me pay whatever way he can.  “A debt needs to be paid.” The woman who came to meet me didn’t owe me money. I could tell by her innocent eyes.  Still, the debt will be paid either way. She was something to play with and use as I saw fit, but something about Emily Brooks made me want to keep her. So she became my dirt…

Graham is my brother's best friend. He’s always been my protector and my confident because he accepts me the way I am—and not many do. I can’t imagine not having him in my life.
Our weekend together was supposed to be a celebration. I graduated from college, Graham got engaged and signed with a pro football team, and my brother landed his dream job. It should have been the best time of our lives.

Except that the weekend started with me walking in on Graham's fiancée going down on my brother.

I complicated the situation by having sex with Graham after that, but I wanted to comfort him and, damn, when I saw desire in his eyes—for me—I couldn’t say no. I’ve wanted him for so long.

Now he doesn’t want to see me. He says he has a darker side he needs to protect me from.

Where do we go from here? Do I try to pretend to be his friend again or push him to open up to me and possibly lose him forever?


Sleeping with one of my best friends was not exactly a brilliant idea. It made…
